Played by B. Dave Walters

Freely was born special. Chosen by the gods, his luck has taken him across the world, and even across the Planes. An unfortunate detour, being trapped as an Illithid, lead him into the company of his beloved friends, the Heroes of the Vale - although now they are Beyond Heroes! Armed with the magic in his blood and the Faith that flows through his sword, he always seeks to destroy evil wherever he can sense it. A daring Halfling of Action, Freely prefers to act first and think later, since - hey, things always tend to work out for him anyway, right? Pay no attention to his mechanical arm, thank you very much.

Briv Steelmarrow

Played by Adam Bradford

Relentlessly brave but markedly uncouth, Briv Steelmarrow is a stalwart champion of the weak, innocent, downtrodden, and oppressed. Centuries ago, a cabal of Netherese mages experimented on Briv’s clan, gifting him a magical metal inside his bones that he can pull through his skin and shape for attack or defense. Once a bloodthirsty raider, Briv sought atonement by joining the Order of the Lost Cause, an elite group of knights that travel across the multiverse, taking on quests that only fools would pursue.

Played by Meagan Kenreck

Widdle is a Gnome turned Dhampir who has made it her life goal to destroy Strahd. Navigating this odd mutation will not be easy for her, but she has made a promise to herself to set a good example for Dhampirs everywhere, with the help of Rend and her friends, to show them that this life does not make you a monster. She is incredibly fast, has a big personality, and an even bigger trenchcoat full of tricks!

Game Master

Avren (and More!)

Played by Todd Kenreck

Avren is an embodiment of mischief; a trickster god in humanoid form. Long ago, he tricked an ancient being into giving him magic and immortality. This power also came with a curse: whenever Avren dies, he will return to life with a new body and varying abilities. While Avren's body may change, however, his soul and his undying love for his wife, Sofieus, always remains. The two have remained married for centuries, seeking each other out to reunite in each lifetime.
